    It looks like sooty mould, the black coating.
    I'm thinking you have probably had a lot of sap sucking insects on the plants all the summer..

    Possibly scale insect, although aphids are also possible.

    Possibly a bit late this year, but I would spray with a systemic insecticide.
    It might stop re-infestation next year.

    Have a close look at the shoots, the kind of scale insect I'm thinking of is like sticky yellow blobs that you can wipe off the stems.
